Send value of a reference (deprecated)


With the plugin “SC::Reference – send specific value of a reference” you can send certain values from references. You can seperate the values with a separator between the fields and between the references.

You also can configure from which position the value should begin and how much elements from the value should be expensed.


Insert the attribute and select the function “SC::Reference – send specific value of a reference (deprecated)” in the dropdown menu.

Click on the red marked button for the extended settings, a new window opens.
Here you set your value that should be transfered to your system.
